Today Avus Capital UK, the company behind Trading 212, a progressive Forex broker and platform developer, received its licence from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). The company sees considerable potential growth in the UK and will be relocating its headquarters to London to boost expansion locally and globally.
 
Established over a decade ago, Trading 212’s mission has always been to offer a compelling trading experience through technological innovation. The company offers its own, proprietary platform Trading 212 PRO, setting it apart from most brokers which offer third­party solutions. As a result, the platform is regularly updated based on client feedback and the company’s vision. An intuitive design that easily navigates users through the trading process, combined with fast and accurate execution are the guiding principles behind the development of Trading 212 PRO and its mobile applications.
 
While the FCA licence is a welcome asset, Trading 212 hasn’t wasted any time. Over the past decade it has built a commendable reputation based on the performance and design of the service it provides and its open and honest customer relations. The company enjoys a solid international presence providing direct access to the global financial markets to more than 200,000 users from 65 countries. The company expects an impressive 80% annual growth in revenue for 2014, driven by its main markets: the UK, Germany, Poland and Spain.
 
The company director Borislav Nedyalkov stated: “This is a defining moment for our business. This licence, from the most respected financial authority, is a testament to our transparency and high business standards. We now cover all the bases to provide an unbeatable trading experience: a fast, technologically innovative trading platform, guaranteed protection of clients’ funds and exceptional multilingual customer support available 24/5. No other broker has the technological focus of Trading 212 and we believe this will enable us to further expand our market reach and position us among the leaders in the industry.”
